Mother nature cooperated and the predicted storms held off long enough to complete our spring Tree Tour. Over 20 people spent the day visiting some of the most notable trees in the region. Some were historic, some were really big and some were just odd! Local arborist Wes Culwell designed the tour stops and had a wealth of information on each tree visited. The day started with a stop at a giant post oak tree where Sam Houston camped while traveling through North Texas and ended with a live oak in Lake Worth that was saved from destruction when the highway was expanded. This tree is currently being cared for by a group of local patrons! Also thanks to the City of Grand Prairie for providing vans and drivers for transporting the tour participants.
